    I worked at Embraer

    Pros

    exciting projects involving new technology, celebrated diversity of national and cultural backgrounds in office

    Cons

    observed gender discrimination against women. lack of accountability in leadership toward their teams. futile ethics violations reporting process. observed favoritism and hiring of personal friends and family members (nepotism). observed anger management issues amoung managers (yelling, cursing at employees). lack of hourly pay (this amounts to unpaid overtime in salaried positions). observed under-paying of qualified new employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve your ethics violations reporting process - observed lack of confidentiality caused several employees to suffer retaliation and alienation. This would resolve many of the other problems if fixed.

    Superb benefits, great management, growth possibilities, competitive pay for the area. I have never encountered a work environment such as this. It is one of the best places I have worked in my aviation career.

    Cons

    If there is on it is only that it is a start up. So we are working through all the growing pains of making this a full facility and getting everyone up to speed.
